FOREWORD 



Herewith the Subcommittee on Rural Development presents the 
1976 Revised Guide to the Rural Development Act of 197:2. 

The Guide has been revised because ox the changing status of sev- 
eral of the programs in the act, and because of our desire to present t o 
rural leaders information which will be useful in their efforts to im- 
prove the quality of life for all rural Americans. 

We are especially grateful to Ms. Trudy Steckbeck and the Rural 
Development Service of the Department of Agriculture for their help 
in preparing the guide.

I. THE ACT 



Purpose of the Rural Development Act 

In the 1970 farm bill, Congress said in title IX, "The Congress 
commits itself to a sound balance between rural and urban America. 
The Congress considers this balance so essential to the peace, pros- 
perity and welfare of all our citizens that the highest priority must 
be given to the revitalization and development of rural areas." 

In support of this commitment the Rural Development Act of 1972 
was passed by Congress in August 1972 and signed by the President 
on August 30, 1972. 

The. overall purpose of the Act is "to provide for improving the 
economy and living conditions in rural America." 

Historical Perspecttve of Rural Development Programs 1 

Throughout the history of the United States, numerous public poli- 
cies and programs have been directed toward increasing the growth 
and development of rural areas. 

A small rural development program was inaugurated in the 1950^ 
during the Eisenhower administration. 

In 1961 after many years of congressional debate, an Area Rede- 
velopment Act was passed by the Congress and approved by the 
President. This act, to be administered by the Department of Com- 
merce, provided for loans, grants, and other financial assistance for 
areas characterized by substantial and persistent underemployment. 
Many of these areas were rural. 

In the Department of Agriculture, during the same 12-month 
period, a rural areas development program was established. It assisted 
State and local agencies in responding to the opportunities offered 
citizens in rural areas by the Area Redevelopment Act. It also stimu- 
lated agencies within the Department of Agriculture to become more 
active in aiding local groups and agencies of government to take steps 
that would expand job opportunities and incomes in rural areas. 

Legislation in the 1960 ? s expanded the "farm" housing program of 
the Fanners Home Administration into a "rural" housing program 
and gave this Government farm credit agency authority to make loans 
and grants for water distribution and sewage disposal systems to serve 
rural areas. 

Other new laws and amendments in the 1960 ? s expanded the Area 
Redevelopment Act into the Economic Development and Accelerated

Public Works Act which authorized Regional Development Commis- 
sions. New laws also gave the Departments of Labor, Housing and 
CTrban Development, Health, Education, and Welfare, and the 
Environmental Protection Agency broadened authorities for dealing 
with problems in the fields of educai ion. skill training, housing, health, 
pollution, and underemployment, all vital to rural development. 

Rural Area Development Committees wore organized in all coui 
Farmers Homo Administration personnel in the Department of Agri- 
culture assumed the leadership of these committees including repre- 
sentatives of the major agencies in the Department plus State and 
local officials in the Kennedy-Johnson administrations. The leadership 
of these committees was transferred to the extension service under the 
Nixon administration. 

1 )is>atisried with the slow rate of progress in solving rural develop- 
ment problems, congressional leaders added a section to the Agricul- 
i ural Act of 1970 which stated : 

Tho Congress commits itself to a sound balance between rural and urban 
America. Tbe Congress considers this balance so essential to peace, prosperity, 
and welfare of all our citizens that highest priority must be given to the revital- 
ization and development of rural areas. 

In 1071 President Nixon proposed a system of special revonue- 
sharing for rural community development, but in lieu of that proposal 
Congress passed the Rural Development Act of 1972. This Act con- 
-i-t- of six titles, each of which expands and strengthens the authori- 
ties and responsibilities of the Department of Agriculture. 

Bi:ii:f Summary of Major Provisions of the Rural Development 

Act of 1972 

1. Broadens the definition of "rural areas" to include all territory 
of the United States other than that within cities of 50,000 or more 
and their suburbs for purposes of eligibility for industrial and busi- 
ness loans and grants, and establishing first priority for location of 
offices and installations: and to include all the territory of the United 
States other than that within cities in excess of 10,000 for purpose of 
eligibility for all other programs under the Act, except that these defi- 
nitions do not limit the geographic location where the expanded and 
new programs for resource conservation and development and water- 
shed project^ and of rural development and small farm extension and 
research and environmental cost sharing my be undertaken. 

2. Expands existing rural water, sewer, and solid waste disposal 
loan program to include all other essential community facilities, 
including lire houses and neighborhood and community centers. 

3. Increases annual authorization for the planning and construction 
grants for rural community water, sewer, and solid waste disposal 
systems (to 830 million and $300 million respectively). 

4. Requires FmlTA in making water, sewer, and waste disposal 
facility loans or grants to give preference to communities of 5,500 or 
less whose existing system has deteriorated. 

5. Provides loans and grants to public bodies for development, con- 
struction, or acquisition of land, buildings, plants, equipment, access 
streets and roads, parking areas, utility extensions, necessary water 



supply and waste disposal facilities, refinancing, services, and fees 
involved in measures designed to facilitate development of private 
business and industrial enterprises. 

6. Removes ceiling limitation on size of loan or indebtedness for 
public bodies and other applicants for community facility, recreation, 
land and water development, use, and conservation loans under 
Farmers Home Administration Act. 

7. Establishes a new guaranteed rural housing loan program that 
does not require that applicant be turned down for credit from other 
sources. 

8. Authorizes Federal cost -sharing and insured loans to local spon- 
sors of small watershed (P.L. 566) projects to provide needed current 
and future municipal and industrial water supplies, including to meet 
fire protection needs. Also includes cost-sharing and loans for ground- 
water recharge, water quality management and for conservation and 
proper utilization of land as well as water. 

9. Provides similar expansion of technical and cost-sharing assist- 
ance to local sponsors of RC&D projects under the Bankhead- Jones 

Act for rural community water supply, water quality management 
control and abatement of agriculture-related pollution, and disposal 
of solid wastes and rural fire protection purposes. 

10. Provides a three-year pilot program under which the U.S. For- 
est Service, working through State forestry departments, will provide 

cost-sharing funds and technical assistance to help rural communities 
to develop and expand their fire fighting capabilities to protect homes, 
industries, recreational developments, factories, and other businesses 
and farmers from uncontrolled fires. 

11. Authorizes loans and grants to public bodies for control, and 
abatement of pollution in connection with facilitating private indus- 
trial, agricultural, and business enterprises. 

12. Expands list of "eligible public body applicants" qualified to 
receive financial assistance under the Act to include Indian tribes and 
federally recognized Indian tribal groups. 

13. Increases the maximum size of individual FmHA farm and busi- 
ness operating loans to $50,000 and provides that such loans may be 
made on an "insured" or "guaranteed'' basis. 

14. Permits applicants seeking loans to acquire, expand or operate 
farms or industrial or business enterprises to obtain such loans based 
upon the "current market value" of their assets instead of "normal 
value". This would mean that borrowers could obtain virtually 100 
percent facility loans. 

15. Provides farm and business enterprise operating credit under 
the FmHA Act to farm and other rural youths in connection with 
youth organization activities. 

16. Authorizes FmHA to make loans to farmers for the purpose of 
complying with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and 
Health Act of 1970. 

17. Desertland entrymen are accorded the same consideration as 
homestead entrymen with respect to financial assistance from FmHA 
which is authorized to accept desertland as security prior to a final 
patent for FmHA loans. 



L8. A program of long-term (up to ten years) contracts simila 
the Great Plains Conservation Program is made available to all farm- 
ers and other land owners or operators in small watei 
project areas ( P.L. 566) and throughout the Tinted States. Plans 

under sueh contracts would have to be prepared in cooperation with 
and approved by soil and water conservation districts. 

10. Farmers and ranchers are made eligible for REAP (ACP) type 
cost-sharing payments for agriculturally related water, air and noise 

pollution abatement and prevention measures on rural land. 

21 ». Authorizes FmHA to make loans and grants for the acquisition, 

expansion or operation of business and industrial enterprises (large 
or small — private or public — profit or nonprofit), and to facilitate 
the development of such enterprises through industrial parks, pollu- 
tion control, access streets and roads, water and utility extensions and 
similar industrial requirements. However, loans and grants made for 
such purposes cannot be made which might result in pirating busi- 
nesses or jobs from one area to another or which will result in adding 
capacity to an industry within an area when an excess or unused ca- 
pacity already exists for that type of industry within that area. 

Such loans may be advanced for any business or industrial purpose 
or for community facility-type supporting systems or installations, in- 
cluding the acquisition, development, construction, rehabilitation, re- 
financing, and improvement of real estate and buildings, equipment, 
working capital, and production expenses as well as service fees. Such 
grants are available to public bodies for both pollution abatement and 
facility-type projects : to private individuals and firms and non-profit 
associations for pollution abatement. 

21. Extends eligibility for industrial and business loans to coop- 
eratives and other non-profit private associations for any business 
purpose. 

22. Provides that existing 5 percent maximum interest rate shall 
be applied to all FmHA long-term farm and community facility: and 
other real estate. However, the new long-term business and industrial 
real estate loans to private individuals and firms are to be at a rate 
determined by the Secretaries of Agriculture and Treasury, based 
upon a prescribed formula. "When business loans made by a private 
lender are guaranteed by FmHA. the interest rate is determined by an 
agreement between the borrower and the lender. 

23. Sets up new program of long and short term loans to rural 
residents to establish small business enterprises to enable them to earn 
essential income. 

24. Farm, business, industrial, and community facility loans au- 
thorized under the amended Farmers Home Administration Act may 
be made on a direct, insured, or guaranteed basis: however, (a) the 
guaranteed creditor must accept 10 percent of the risk on a guaranteed 
loan., with FmHA assuming only 00 percent: and (b) the applicant 
must first attempt to obtain a guaranteed loan before being eligible 
for an insured or direct loan. 

25. Increases the authorized level of loans that may be held by the 
Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund to $500 million and relieves this 
fund of existing non-farm rural development funding obligations. 



(Such obligations will be handled through new Rural Development 
Credit Insurance Fund.) Existing authorization for ACIF to make 
interest rate subsidies is continued. 

26. Establishes a new Rural Development Credit Insurance Fund 
for the purpose of making and insuring non-farm rural development 
loans. No ceiling on amount of loans that may be held is established 
for the RDCI fund. Interest rate subsidies may also be made out of 
this fund. 

27. Provides for joint financial participation by FmHA with respect 
to loans and grants made through other Federal, State, local, and 
private financial institutions and governmental departments and agen- 
cies, such as Small Business Administration, Farm Credit Adminis- 
tration, Economic Development Administration, HUD, EPA, State 
and local governmental as well as private financial institutions. 

28. Tightens up requirements of 1970 Agricultural Act relating to 
the locating of offices and facilities in rural areas. Requires that Exec- 
utive Branch give "highest priority" to rural areas in locating such 
facilities. 

29. Requires that purposes for which loans and grants are made for 
community facilities shall not be inconsistent with State, substate, and 
local government comprehensive rural development plans and pro- 
vides that they be reimbursed for the costs of making the necessary 
reviews of project applications. 

30. Provides for $10 million authorization in grants for the prep- 
aration of general purpose rural development plans. 

31. Requires the Secretary of Agriculture to carry out a land inven- 
tory and monitoring program to include, but not to be limited to, 
studies and surveys covering erosion and sediment damages, flood 
plain identification and utilization, land use changes, and trends and 
degradation of the environment resulting from improper use of soil, 
water and related resources. 

32. Provides for the establishment of a new nationwide research and 
extension program to support rural development and to help small 
farmers through cooperatives and in marketing of their products and 
in the management and operation of their farming enterprises. This 
new program will be administered by the Secretary of Agriculture in 
cooperation with the presidents of State Land Grant Colleges, and in- 
volves all other private and public institutions of technical or higher 
education. (Land Grant Colleges of 1890 and professional schools of 
engineering are specifically cited as playing a major role in this 
program.) 

33. Amends the organic act of the Department of Agriculture to (a) 
add "rural development" as its basic mission; (b) require the Secre- 
tary of Agriculture to formulate national goals for rural development 
and report annually on progress in attaining them; and (c) requires 
the Department of Agriculture to initiate programs of research in 
rural housing, water supply, sewage and solid waste management, and 
rural industrialization. 

34. Gives the Secretary of Agriculture primary responsibility for 
rural development within the Executive Branch which includes advis- 
ing the President, members of the Cabinet, and the Congress regard- 





ing such matters. The Secretary of Agriculture also is given 
authority to call upon and coordinate the programs and activities of 
aU Executive Branch departments and agencies within rural areas 
relating to rural development or that are designed to improve the 
quality of life of the people living in nonmetropolitan America. 

35. Provides for a new or additional Assistant Secretary position 
within USDA, such position to be utilized to strengthen and empha- 
size rural development within that Department. 



II. IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ACT 



Implementation of the "Rural Development Act has been compli- 
cated by the fact that the administration sought a different type of 
rural policy. In 1971, President Nixon called for the adoption of 
special revenue sharing for rural community development "with the 
discretion on how [the Federal money] will be used * * * strictly a 
State and local matter." x At the same time, the President proposed 
legislation that would have merged seven departments and several 
agencies into four major departments. The Department of Agriculture 
would have been disbanded and its functions relating to rural devel- 
opment were to be incorporated into a new Department of Community 
Development. 

The Congress considered these proposals but declined to adopt them. 
The Rural Development Act of 1972 calls for a national policy on rural 
development under Federal leadership, not 50 or more unrelated and 
potentially contradictory policies of State governments. It adds new 
specific forms of assistance such as communit}' facilities loans and 
guaranteed private business loans rather than giving the States Fed- 
eral dollars to be dispensed at each State's discretion. 

The President took note of these differences when the bill came be- 
fore him after enactment by the Congress. He reiterated his preference 
for rural revenue sharing "to provide additional financial resources 
to State and local governments without counterproductive Federal 
strings attached." And for "new loan authority for commercial, indus- 
trial, and community development under a credit-sharing system 
which would allow the States themselves to select most of the loan 
recipients." 2 Despite these differences, the President signed the bill 
into law on August 30, 1972. 

The Curtis Amendment 

Draft regulations issued by the Department of Agriculture in June 
1973 proposed to implement the Rural Development Act in the spirit 
of President Nixon's revenue-sharing proposals. The proposed regu- 
lations stated: 

Federal implementation of the act will be consistent with the President's policy 
of decentralized decisionmaking and administrative responsibility to State and 
local elected officials to the maximum extent practicable. Unless specified other- 
wise by the State government, Federal agencies will look to the State Governors 
to speak for the State government in all matters pertaining to the administration 
of the act. 3

More specifically, the preliminary regulations proposed to allocate 
loan anil grant funds for business and industrial development on a 
formula basis among the States bur not below the State level. The 
latter determination would be left to the discretion of the Governors 
or other State ollicials. 

The Congress expected that the business loans and related grants 
would be processed and approved by the professionals in the Depart- 
ment of Agriculture, not by State ollicials. To make this clear, Senator 
Curtis, joined by six other Senators, offered an amendment to the law. 
As finally adopted in section 817 of the Agriculture and Consumer 
Protection Act of 1973, this amends Sec. 310B(d) of the Consolidated 
Farm and Rural Development Act by adding at the end thereof the 
following : 

Xo grant or loan authorized to be made under this act shall require or be sub- 
ject to the prior approval of any officer, employee, or agency of any State. 

The Department of Agriculture took note of this amendment in 
final regulations adopted in October 1973. The Department will not 
seek prior approval by any State official of any loan or grant under 
programs authorized by title I of the Rural Development Act of 1972. 
But it intends to give "the fullest possible consideration to planning 
and development goals and strategies at the State and multicounty 
jurisdictional levels." The regulations further state that "State 
designations of eligible areas will be duly considered by the Federal 
Government in the determination of eligibility for loan and grant 
assistance.*' 

Leadership in Washington 

Title VI, section 603 of the Act directed the Secretary of Agricul- 
ture to provide leadership and coordination within the executive 
branch and assume responsibility for a nationwide rural development 
program using the services of all agencies of the executive branch in 
coordination with rural development programs of State and local 
governments. 

The Secretary is required to procure and preserve all information 
he can obtain with regard to "rural development" as well as agricul- 
ture, thus providing a Specific statutory authorization for research 
and statistics gathering (and the publication of the results of such 
activity) in all phases of the broad field of rural development. The 
Secretary is also specifically authorized to initiate or expand research 
and development efforts related to rural water supply, rural sewage 
and solid waste management, rural housing, and rural industriali- 
zation. 

The Secretary is also required to establish employment, income, 
population, housing, and quality of community services and facilities 
goals for rural development and report anually to Congress on prog- 
ress toward their attainment. 

Title VI, section 604 of the Act authorized an additional position of 
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture to give high level assistance to the 
Secretary in carrying out the new responsibilities for leadership and 
coordination assigned to him by the Act. In implementing this section 



of the Act, the Department of Agriculture instituted d major reorga- 
nization, bringing the Rural Development Service, the Farmers Home 
Administration, and the Rural Electrification Administration under 
the leadership of the new Assistant Secretary for Rural Development 
to provide a focal point for USDA rural development action. 

The responsibility for title VI, section 603 was delegated to the 
Assistant Secretary for Rural Development and redelegated to the 
Administrator, Rural Development Service. The mission of the Rural 
Development Service is to promote the development of rural America, 
with primary emphasis on community development by : 

(a) Coordinating a nationwide Rural Development program 
utilizing the services of executive branch departments and 
agencies ; 

(b) Ensuring that available Federal resources and services are 
effectively applied to the needs of rural America ; and 

(c) Carrying out education, information dissemination, and 
other activities which contribute to the economic, social, and 
cultural development of rural America. 

An explanation of the coordination function of the Department of 
Agriculture ma}' be found on page 36. 



SECTION-BY-SECTION PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS 

Title I — Amendments to the Consolidated Farmei 
Hon; Administration Act or 1961 

Sec. 10L 1 Title 

Amended section 301(a) of the Consolidated Farmers Home Ad- 
ministration Act of 1961 to rename it as the "Consolidated Farm and 
Rural Development Act." 

Sec. 102. Rural Enterprise Loans — (Section 302 of the Consoli- 
dated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1922)) 

The objective of this loan program is to establish in rural areas 
nonfarm business enterprises to supplement farm income. However, 
this program has not been fully implemented because individual 
farmers can be assisted under the Farm Ownership Loan Program by 
estabHsning business enterprises on their farm. The individual rural 
resident can be assisted for nonfarm business loan credit under the 
Business and Industrial Loan Program which has broader authoriza- 
tions and larger loan limits. Rural residents who desire a Business 
and Industrial loan see Sec. 118. For those farmers who desire to estab- 
lish a business enterprise on the farm, the following program descrip- 
tion applies: 

Who may borrow? — To be eligible, an applicant mast — 

(1) Have a farm background and, except for Veterans, have 
sufficient farm experience or training needed to succeed in the 
farming operation. 

(2) Possess the character, industry, and ability to carry' out the 
farm operation or the nonfarm enterprise. 

(3) Manage and operate the farm or nonfarm enterprise. 

(4) Be unable to obtain sufficient credit elsewhere at reasonable 
rates and terms to finance his actual needs. 

i 5 ) Be a citizen of the United States and of legal age. 

(6) After the loan is made, be the owner-operator of a family 
farm that will produce a substantial portion of his total income. 

( 7 ) Be able to obtain operating capital. 

(8) Be an individual who must rely on farm income to have a 
reasonable standard of living. 

How may loan fwnds be used? 

To finance nonfarm enterprises which will help farmers supplement 
their farm incomes — buy and develop land, construct building- and 
other facilities, purchase equipment, and make other real estate 
improvement-. 

fion numbers identify sorptions of the Rural Development Act of 1972. 

(10) 



11 

Nonfarm enterprises which may be financed on family farms in- 
clude camping and swimming facilities, tennis courts, riding stables, 
vacation rental cottages, lakes and ponds for boating and fishing, 
docks, nature trails, picnic grounds, repair shops, roadside markets, 
souvenir shops, craft and wood or metal working facilities, and small 
grocery stores or service station facilities. 

What are the terms and interest rate? 

The interest rate is 5 percent per year on the unpaid principal. The 
maximum term is 40 years. 

A borrower may make large payments in years of high income to 
build up a reserve that may keep the loan in good standing during 
years of low income. 

Each borrower is expected to refinance the unpaid balance of the 
loan when it is financially feasible for him to rely solely on commercial 
credit sources. 

Farm ownership borrowers are required to maintain their property, 
and pay taxes and property insurance premiums when due. 

Where will applicants obtain technical help? 

The applicant will be assisted by the lender or Farmers Home 
Administration County Supervisor in working out a plan to make the 
best use of land, labor, livestock, capital, and equipment. This plan 
will be a guide for the borrower and his family in determining the 
soundness of the proposed operation and to follow in operating the 
farm or nonfarm enterprise. Before a loan is made it must be clear 
that the borrower will have enough income to meet operating and 
family living expenses and to repay the loan and other debts. In all 
cases, labor must be furnished primarily by the operator and his imme- 
diate familv, except during seasonal peak-load periods. 

'Where to apply for a loan f 

Apply at the office of a commercial lender or the county Farmers 
Home Administration office serving the area where the property is 
located. If the office cannot be located in the local telephone directory 
under United States Department of Agriculture, write to Farmers 
Home Administration. U.S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, 
D.C. 20250. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 1881.1, Subpart A. 

Sec. 103. Current Market Value Appraisals — (Section 305 of the 
Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 
1925)) 

Allows FmHA to appraise farm land and other properties at their 
current market value rather than a "normal value." 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 1809.2. 

Sec. 104. Community Facility Loans — (Section 306(a) of the Con- 
solidated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926)) 

The objectives of this loan program are to construct, enlarge, extend, 
or otherwise improve community facilities providing essential services

State and local laws. 

How funds may he used and use restrictions. 
Uses : Funds may be used : 

(1) To construct, enlarge, extend, or otherwise improve com- 
munity water, sewer and solid waste disposal systems and storm 
waste water facilities. 

(2) To construct, enlarge, extend, or otherwise improve com- 
munity facilities providing essential services to rural residents. 
Such facilities include but are not limited to those providing or 
supporting overall community development such as fire and rescue 
services; transportation; traffic control; community, social, cul- 
tural, and recreational benefits; industrial parks including utili- 
ties and access roads but not improvements erected on the land 
such as business and industrial buildings. 

Use restrictions : Loans shall not be made for community electric 
or telephone systems. All facilities financed in whole or in part with 
FmllA funds shall be for public use. 

What are the time limits and the interest rate? 

The maximum term on all loans is 40 years. However, no repayment 
period will exceed any statutory limitation on the organization's bor- 
rowing authority nor the useful life of the improvement or facility to 
be financed. The interest rate is currently five percent of the unpaid 
principal. 

Where will applicants obtain technical help? 

The Farmers Home Administration will assist the applicant in 
making the first determinations regarding engineering feasibility, eco- 
nomic soundness, cost estimates, organization, financing, and manage- 
ment matters in connection with the proposed improvements. 

If financing is provided, the Farmers Home Administration will 
make periodic inspections to see that funds are used as agreed upon 
and that construction meets approved standards. 



13 

Where and how are applications made? 

Applications for loans may be obtained at the local county offices of 
the Farmers Home Administration. The county office will be glad to

Sees. 105-107. Grants for Water and Waste Disposal Systems — 
(Section 306(a) (2) and (3) of the Consolidated Farm and 
Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926)) 

a. Changes contained in the Act for this program are as follows : 

(1) Increased the annual grant appropriation authorization 
from $100 million to $300 million. (Section 105) 

(2) Strengthened the law by requiring that all applications for 
proposed water, waste disposal and other essential community 
facilities be submitted for review to planning agencies in accord- 
ance with OMB Circular No. A-95. It also authorizes reimburse- 
ment to such agencies for the cost of required reviews of such ap- 
plications. (Section 106) 

(3) Broadened the authority for comprehensive water and 
sewer planning grants by (a) including authorization for solid 
waste plans, (b) increasing the annual authorized ceiling to $30 
million from $15 million, and (c) providing for such grants to 
appropriate agencies which may not have statutory authority to 
prepare "official*' plans. (Section 108 not implemented) 

(4) Eliminated the $4 million ceiling for loans and grants for 
central community water and waste disposal facilities. (Section 
110) 

(5) Requires that in making loans and grants for community 
water and waste disposal systems, the Secretary must give priority 
to (a) communities of not more than 5,500 in which an existing 
water supply needs immediate action because of unanticipated 
deterioration and diminution of its water supply; and (b) com- 
munities of not more than 5,500 in which an existing waste dis- 
posal system is not adequate due to unanticipated occurrences. 
(Section 112) 

b. Program operations: The objective of this program is to help 
financially needy communities which presently lack water and waste 
disposal systems and which are not able to develop such facilities with 
usual methods of financing. Grants reduce the overall cost of construc- 
tion with the specific objective of reducing the residential user cost to a 
reasonable level. 

Who may receive assistance ? 

Public entities such as municipalities, counties, and special purpose 
districts with a population of 10,000 or less. Indian tribes on Federal 
and State lands and other federally recognized Indian tribes are also 
eligible. 

What is the grant limitation? 

Grants may not exceed 50 percent of the eligible project develop- 
ment cost. Grants are made only when and in such amounts as may be 



14 

necessary to provide services to rural families at reasonable rates. 
Selection of projects to receive the grants and determination of the 

amounts of such grants are based on the premise that a family may rea- 
sonably be expected to expend a portion of its income for water and 
waste disposal services. Specifically, FmllA regulations provide that 
a family should expend at least one percent of its income (median in- 
come for the community) for the construction of its water and sewer 
system. If the debt repayment portion of the water or sewer cost ex- 
ceeds one percent of the median income, the applicant is then con- 
sidered for a grant in an amount necessary to reduce such cost to a 
figure not lower than one percent of the median income. 

Whi re will applicants obtain technical helpf 

The Farmers Home Administration will assist the applicant in 
making the first determinations regarding engineering feasibility, 
economic soundness, cost estimates, organization, financing, and man- 
agement matters in connection with the proposed improvements. 

If financing is provided, the Farmers Home Administration will 
make periodic inspections to see that funds are used as agreed upon 
and that construction meets approved standards. 

Where and how are applications made? 

Applications may be obtained at the local county oflices of the Farm- 
ers Home Administration. The county office staff will be glad to 
discuss services available from the agency and explain how to prepare 
a written application. The county staff will also provide information 
where the application is to be filed. If you are unable to locate the 
FmHA county office, get in touch with the appropriate FmllA State 1 
office listed in the appendix.

Title 7, Part 1823.1 to 182348. 

Sec. 108. Water and Waste Disposal Planning Grants — (Section 
306(a)(6) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development 
Act (7 U.S.C. 1926)) 

Broadened the authority for comprehensive water and sewer plan- 
ning grants by (a) increasing the annual authorized ceiling to $30 
million from $15 million, (b) including authorization for solid waste 
plans, and (c) providing for such grants to appropriate agencies 
which may not have statutory authority to prepare "official" plans. 

The comprehensive planning grant program was implemented in 
fiscal year 1966. The program was discontinued in January of 1973 
when the water and waste disposal grant program was suspended. The 
Farmers I Come Administration does not plan to reinstate this program 
;it the present time. It is their opinion that water and waste disposal 
grant fluids can be more beneficial to rural communities in the actual 
construction of water and waste disposal facilities. Furthermore, sev- 
eral other Federal agencies have funds available for comprehensive 
planning. It is FmHA's understanding that the Department of Hous- 
ing and Urban Development provided $100 million in fiscal year 1071. 
$100 million in fiscal year 1975, and has funds available for the 1976 
fiscal year. In fiscal year 1075. the Fconomic Development Adminis- 
tration provided approximately $8 million for economic development 



15 

planning assistance. The Environmental Protection Agency' provided 
some $100 million to fund feasibility studies for providing waste col- 
lect ion and treatment facilities. 

Sec. 109. Definition of Rural Areas— (Section 306(a)(7) of the 
Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 

1926)) 

Defines rural areas for the purposes of the Act to include open coun- 
t iv and towns of up to 10.000 people, except that for loans and grants 
for private business enterprises, includes all areas not within cities of 
50,000 or larger and not within immediately adjacent urbanized and 
urbanizing areas which have a population density of more than one 
hundred persons per square mile. As for the loans and grants for pri- 
vate business enterprise, special consideration must be given to applica- 
tions from areas other than cities having a population of more than 
25,000. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 1822.3. 

Sec. 110. Repeal of Maximum Size Community Facility Loan — 
(Repeal of Section 306(a)(5) of the Consolidated Farm and 
Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926)) 

Repealed the $4 million limitation on water and sewer loan and 
grant combinations. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 1823.1 to 182348. 

Sec. 111. Rural Development Planning Grants — (Section 306(a) 
(11) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act) 

Authorizes grants not to exceed $10 million annually for planning 
for rural development. 

The Department of Agriculture recognizes the need for planning 
assistance in rural communities. However, this section has not been 
implemented because the Administration's position is that the HUD 
701 planning grant funds can adequately serve the purpose for plan- 
ning grants, since 701 funds are also available to rural communities 
for comprehensive development planning. 

Sec. 112. Priority for Certain Water Facility and Waste Disposal 
Loans and Grants— (Section 306(a)(12) of the Consolidated 
Farm and Rural Development Act (7 U.S.C. 1926)) 

Requires that in making loans and grants for community water and 
waste disposal systems, the Secretary of Agriculture must give prior- 
ity to (a) communities of not more than 5,500 in which an existing 
water supply needs immediate action because of unanticipated de- 
terioration and diminution of its water supply; and (b) communities 
of not more than 5,500 in which an existing waste disposal system is 
not adequate due to unanticipated occurrences. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 1823.1 to 182348.

Sec. 113. Interest Rates on Rural Development Loans — (Section 
307(a) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act 
(7 U.S.C. 1927)) 

Authorized the - tary of Agriculture to establish the int< 

on rural development loans (other than guaranteed loans, loans 
to public bodies or nonprofit associations, including Indian tribes on 
Federal and State reservations and other federally recognized Indian 
t ribal groups) for community facilities, or loans of a type authorized 
by section 306(a) (1) prior to its amendments by this Act. When made 
other than as guaranteed loans, these loans will bear interest at the 
rate prescribed by the Secretary taking into consideration losses and 

of administration but not less than a rate determined by the 
Secretary of the Treasury. As for guaranteed loans for new rural 
development purposes the interest rate will be such rate as is mutually 
agreeable to the borrower and the lender. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7. Part 1810.1. 

Sec. 114. Escrow Payments — (Section 307(a) of the Consolidated 
Farm and Rural Development Act) 

Authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to require borrowers under 
the Farm Ownership Loan program to repay taxes and insurance in 
escrow. 

This section has not been implemented because of administrative 
problems. 

Sec. 115. Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund — (Section 309(f) of 
the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act) (7 U.S.C. 
1926-1929, 1966 and 1988)

can be used to provide interest rate subsidies on any insured farm 
credit real estate loans where the insured creditor charges a higher 
interest rate than the borrower pays: (2) for increasing the amount 
of loans which may be held in the fund to S.500 million from £100 
million: (3) for transferring assets and liabilities of the Farmers 
Home Administration direct loan account and the Emergency Credit 
Revolving Fund to the ACIF: and (4) for guaranteeing loans. 

Sec. 116. Rural Development Insurance Fund — (Section 309A(a) 
of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act) (7 U.S.C. 
1929 , 1985, and 31 U.S.C. 774) 

Establishes a new revolving fund called the "Rural Development 
Insurance Fund", which will be used by the Secretary for the purposes 
of discharging his obligations in connection with rural development 
loans. These include (1) loans locally originated and serviced by the 
guaranteed holder, (2) loans made by a local lender that are processed, 
insured, and serviced by the Secretary, and (3) loans made out of the 
Fund. sold, insured, and serviced by the Secretary. 



17 

The Secretary will utilize this fund only for the type of loans pro- 
vided for by sections 304(b), 310B, 312(b) and (c), the new type of 
loans for essential community facilities authorized by the amend: 
to 306(a) (1) by section 104(2) of this Act, and the water system and 
waste disposal loans authorized by section 306(a) (1) prior to enact- 
ment of this Act. 

The assets and liabilities of the Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund 
applicable to such water and waste disposal loans, are transferred to 
the Rural Development Insurance Fund. Such assets and liabilities, 
the proceeds of such assets, and loans guaranteed or insured under 
this subtitle are subject to the provisions of this section and section 
308. The cross-reference to section 308 makes it clear that all contracl s 
of guarantee or insurance entered into by the Secretary for loans 
under this section, as well as contracts of guarantee or insurance here- 
tofore or hereafter entered into by the Secretary for water and waste 
disposal loans under section 306(a) (1), are backed by the Insurance 
Fund and the full faith and credit of the United States. 

If there should be insufficient moneys in the Insurance Fund to en- 
able the Secretary to make loans, advances, and authorized expendi- 
tures out of the Insurance Fund, he is authorized to borrow from the 
Secretary of the Treasury to replenish the Insurance Fund. The Sec- 
retary of Treasury is authorized and directed to purchase notes issued 
by the Secretary for such purpose, which notes would bear interest 
comparable to the cost of money to the Treasury for obligations having 
maturities comparable to the notes and to the loans authorized to be 
guaranteed or insured. 

The Secretary is required to deposit in the Insurance Fund all fees 
and charges collected by him for loan services, such as expenses for 
obtaining credit and property appraisal reports, and additional 
charges assessed for losses and administrative costs in connection with 
guaranteed or insured loans. 

Subsection (g) authorizes the Secretary to use the Insurance Fund 
for the purpose of making and insuring loans authorized under this 
subtitle whenever he has a reasonable assurance of being able to sell

mittal to the holder; (3) to purchase notes and bonds in accordance 
with repurchase agreements contained in contracts of insurance entered 
into by the Secretary in connection with loans under this subtitle, 
including loans transferred to the Insurance Fund; (4) to pay the 
cost of the Secretary's administration in connection with these loan 
programs; and (5) to make other expenditures and advances, such as 
payment of taxes, insurance, prior liens, fiscal adjustments, credit 
reports, property appraisals, and other expenses and advances to pro- 
tect security for insured loans, and for guaranteed loans after or in 
connection with the Secretary's acquisition of guaranteed loans or 
security, and to acquire security property at foreclosure sale or 
otherwise.

The Secretary is also authorized to use the [nsurance Fund to pay 
the difference between interest payments by borrowers and interest 
to which holders of insured and guaranteed Loans are entitled under 
cont i arts of insurance or guarantee. 

Subsection (h) makes the interest or other income from loans sold 
out of the Fund fully taxable.

d. Stabilize annual streamflow, increase the recharge of ground 
water reservoirs and conserve present water supplies. 

2. For special land treatment measures, structures or equipment 
installed or used by the local organization primarily, but not entirely, 
for flood prevention and which produce community benefits sufficient 
to justify use of taxes or other local revenues for their installation. 

3. To install, repair, or improve water storage facilities for such 
purposes as recreation, fish and wildlife improvement, and pollution 



19 

abatement by streamflow regulation and saline water intrusion control 
and to meet a municipality's immediate or future water supply needs. 
A loan for a storage reservoir for municipal water supply may include 
funds for pipelines and any necessary pumping facilities to convey 
the water from the reservoir to the existing or proposed municipal

costs such as for the removal, relocation or replacement of bridges, 
roads, railroads, pipelines, buildings and fences. 

7. To repay an advance made by the SCS for the immediate pur- 
chase of land and rights-of-way essential to preserve sites for works 
of improvement from interference by encroachment of other 
developments. 

8. To acquire a water supply or a water right. 

9. To employ engineers, attorneys, auditors, construction foremen 
and clerks needed to organize the group, make engineering surveys, 
develop construction plans, administer construction contracts and 
supervise the building of works of improvement. 

10. To buy equipment needed to build or install the planned works 
of improvement provided it cannot be rented cheaper or that the cost 
of works of improvement will be lower as a result. 

11. To refinance debts of a local organization under certain 
conditions. 

How may advance funds he used? 
Advances by SCS may be used : 

1. To pay the construction cost of reservoir capacity including in- 
take and outlet structures for future municipal and industrial water 
supplv. 

2. To acquire sites for authorized types of works of improvements 
where immediate acquisition is essential to preserve them from inter- 
ference by other developments. 

What are the terms? 

Loans are scheduled for repayment within the shortest period con- 
sistent with the borrowers' abilities to repay. The repayment period 
may not exceed that permitted by the applicable State law and in no 
event will exceed 50 years from when the principal benefits of the 
facilities become available. There must be adequate evidence that in- 
come will be sufficient to meet all scheduled repayments. 

Advance terms : 

1. Advances to preserve sites must be fully repaid with interest prior 
to beginning construction of works of improvement on the sites thus 
acquired. 

2. If permitted by State law, principal repayments on advances for 
future water supply may be deferred until 1 year after water is first 
used from the storage capacity installed with the advance or until the 



20 

end of 10 years from the scheduled completion date of the structure, 

whichever occurs first. 

No interest will be charged on advances for future water supply 
until water is first used or the end of 10 years from the date of the 
advance, whichever occurs first. Thereafter interest payments, at the 
interest rare established for loans on the date, of the advance, will be 
scheduled at least annually. To be eligible for these terms, there must 
be evidence that the local organization will use the water and can meet 
scheduled installments of principal and interest. 

The interest rate is the average rate paid by the U.S. Treasury on 
obligations of a similar maturity outstanding at the beginning of the 
fiscal year in which the watershed loan is made. Once the interest rate 
is set on a loan, it will not change during the life of that loan. 

Each borrower may make prepayments in any amount at any time. 

Hon: much can be borrowed or advanced? 

The total amount of indebtedness for all watershed loans for any 
one watershed project, whether made to one or more borrowers, shall 
not exceed So million. 

The maximum amount of any advance for reservoir capacity for 
future water supply will be 30 percent of the estimated total installa- 
tion cost of the structure in which capacity for future water supply 
is to be provided. 

The amount of an advance to acquire and preserve sites for works of 
improvement may not exceed the amount determined by the SCS to be 
necessary. 

What security is required? 

Watershed loans and advances will be secured in a manner which 
will adequately protect the interests of the Government. Usually, 
security that can be offered includes general obligation bonds sup- 
ported by ad valorem taxes, revenue bonds secured by pledges of reve- 
nue, other evidences of debt secured by special assessments or by liens 
on facilities and pledges of income. 

How to apply? 

Each local organization desiring a watershed loan will make appli- 
cation to the local county supervisor of the Farmers Home Adminis- 
tration. Organizations desiring an advance will contact the Soil Con- 
servation Service representative.

bers, shareholders, beneficiaries of the applicant or lender or mem- 
bers of their families. 

How can credit be obtained? 

The Farmers Home Administration is authorized to provide credit

FmHA can guarantee loans by private lenders. Applicants should 
apply for the loan through their private lenders. The agency contracts 
to reimburse the lender for a percentage of any loss sustained on 
such loans. Lenders are responsible for making and servicing loans. 
(2) For public bodies, FmHA can make and service the loan. These 
applicants apply directly to FmHA.

What is the guarantee? 

It is an assurance to protect the investor, and may cover up to 90 
percent of the lender's principal and interest. 

Is collateral required? 

Yes. It must be of such nature that, when considered with the 
integrity and ability of the project management, the soundness of the 
project/ and the applicant's prospective earnings, repayment of the 
loan will be reasonably assured. 

Must the applicant provide equity? 

The applicant will be required to provide sufficient cash or other 
assets to provide reasonable assurance of a successful project. 

What is the repayment schedule? 

Final maturity will not exceed : 

(1) 30 years for land, buildings and permanent fixtures; 

(2) 15 years for machinery or equipment; or the life of the 
machinery or equipment, whichever is shorter ; 

(3) 7 years for working capital. 

Interest will be due at least annually after the loan is closed. All or 
any part of a loan may be repaid before it is due, without penalty. 

What will the interest rate be? 

For guaranteed loans, the interest rate will be determined by the 
lender and the borrower, consistent with the market rate. On insured 
loans to public bodies and private entrepreneurs, the interest rates on 
loans made by Farmers Home Administration will be computed on 
cost of Treasury borrowing plus an increment to cover administrative 
costs; for public bodies borrowing to install community facilities 
necessary for community development, the rate will be 5 percent.

Project requirements — 

Each project must be part of an organized and supervised program 
of work. The project must be planned with the help of the organiza- 
tion supervisor and operated under his guidance, must give indication 
that it will produce sufficient income to repay the loan, and must pro- 
vide the youth with practical business experience. 

Who may borrow? — To secure an FmHA Youth Loan one must: 

( 1 ) Be a citizen of the United States. 

(2) Have reached the age of 10 but have not reached the age 
of 21. 

(3) Live in the open country or in a town of less than 10,000 
people. 

(4) Be unable to get a loan from other sources. 

(5) Conduct an income-producing project in a supervised pro- 
gram of work, as outlined above. 

Also one must have a good character, and be capable of planning, 
managing, and operating the project under guidance and assistance 
from a project advisor. The project advisor must agree that the project 
is a good one and recommend the loan be made. If the youth is under 
legal age, the parents or guardian must also agree to the project. 

What are some possible projects? 

Loans can finance nearly any kind of income-producing operation, 
including : 

(1) Crop production. 

(2) Livestock production. 

(3) Repair shops. 

(4) Woodworking shops. 

(5) Re-upholstering and refinishing furniture. 

( 6 ) Mobile machinery repair vans. 

(7) Roadside stands and many others. 
What may loans be used for? 

Young people may use the money to : 

( 1 ) Purchase livestock and farm equipment. 

(2) Buy, rent, or repair needed tools and equipment. 

(3) Pay operating expenses for running the project. 

(4) Buy supplies. 
How large a loan can one get? 

Loan size depends on the kind of project. It also depends on the 
project plans, the recommendations of the project advisor, and the 
approval of the FmHA county supervisor. Loans may be made to indi- 
viduals only, not to organizations. 

Only projects of modest size can be financed. A modest project 
should be limited in physical size, capital requirements, and overall 
objective. 

What is the interest rate? 

The interest rate for youth loans is determined each July 1 for the 
following year, based on cost of money to the Government. However, 
when a loan is made the interest rate for that loan will not change, but 
if another loan is made later, the interest rate could be different. 

What security is required? 

To receive a loan one must sign a promissory note making him 
personally and fully responsible for the debt. A cosigner will be re- 
quired on all loans over $2,500, and occasionally the FmHA county 
supervisor may require a cosigner for loans of $2,500 or less. 



26 

In addition, loans will be secured by liens on products produced for 
sale and on chattel property, including livestock, equipment, and fix- 
tures purchased with loan funds. 

How ah out repayment? 

The schedule for repaying the loan will be worked out with the 
FmllA county supervisor. Payments will be determined by the type of 
project for which the loan was made. If it is raising livestock or 
crops, for example, the loan can be paid when the produce is sold. 
If the project is a repair shop or some other service operation, the 
loan can be paid from the weekly or monthly earnings. 

Where and how are applications made? 

Completed plans and budgets should be signed by the organization 
supervisor and submitted by the applicant to the local county office 
of the Farmers Home Administration. 

Application forms for Youth Loans are available from the FmHA 
county supervisor.

rural communities. This determination will be based on the current 
Insurance Services Office rating of the community. 

USDA policy does not permit discrimination because of race, color, 
national origin, sex or religion. Any person who believes he or she 
has been discriminated against in any USDA-related activity should 
write immediately to the Secretary of xlgriculture, Washington, D.C.

Title V — Rural Development and Small Farm 
Research and Education 

Sees. 501-504. Rural Development Research and Education — (Title 
V of the Rural Development Act of 1972) 

The objective of this program is to develop and provide the best 
available scientific, technical, economic, organizational, environ- 
mental, and management information relating to effective develop- 
ment in rural America. The recipients of this assistance are local units 
of government, State governments, cities, multi-county development 
groups, citizens organizations, businesses, and industries effecting de- 
velopment in rural areas. The providers of assistance are the institu- 
tions of higher education in the States. 

This Title also calls for research and educational work in making 
maximum economic use of what may be inefficient farm units. Funds 
have not been requested nor appropriated for small farm research and 
extension work. 

PROGRAM OPERATIONS 

The United States Department of Agriculture makes grants to 
States on the basis of an approved Plan of Work to support rural 
development research and extension education in specific geographic 
or problem areas with emphasis in rural areas including towns and 
cities with populations of less than 50,000. Funds will be allocated on 
the basis of the following formula : 4 percent to the Secretary. USDA, 
for administration, coordination, and program assistance to the States ; 
10 percent for payment to States to finance work serving 2 or more 
States; 20 percent equally to all States; 66 percent for payments to 
States of which one-half is on the basis of rural population and one- 
half of the basis of farm population. 
_ The Chief Administrative Officer of each State land-grant univer- 
sity accepting the benefits of the Morrill Act of 1862 is responsible 
for administering the program in each State: he appoints a State 
Rural Development Advisory Council to review and approve annual 



36 

program plans and to advise on the administration of the program. 
All private and publicly supported colleges and universities in a State, 
including the land-grant colleges of 1890, are eligible to participate 
in this program. 

A memorandum of understanding mutually agreed upon by the 
Secretary, Tinted States Department of Agriculture, and the admin- 
istering university, provides for coordination of this program with 
other rural development programs of the Federal, State and local 
government, and submission of an annual program plan and progress 
report to the Department of Agriculture. 

where can assistance be obtained? 

Any citizen, cooperative, government, group, or organization wish- 
ing to obtain assistance under Title V may submit requests to the 
university officials responsible for administering Title V (section 
504(c) of the Act). Channels of communication for requesting assist- 
ance may be: (1) direct to the responsible university officials, e.g.. the 
State Title V coordinator, the director of cooperative extension, or the 
research coordinator: (2) through a member (s) of the Rural Develop- 
ment Advisory Council; and (3) through an experiment station 
faculty member or through a county extension office.

ticable provide directly, or, in the case of agencies outside of the 
Department of Agriculture, through arrangements with the heads 
of such agencies, for — 

(1) The location of all field units of the Federal Government 
concerned with rural development in the appropriate Department 
of Agriculture offices covering the geographical areas most similar 
to those covered by such field units, and report to Congress on the 
progress made, and 

(2) The interchange of personnel and facilities in each such 
office to the extent necessary or desirable to achieve the most 
efficient utilization of such personnel and facilities and provide 
the most effective assistance in the development of rural areas in 
accordance with State rural development plans. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 

Title 7, Part 22, Subparts A,B, and C. 
Rural Development Coordination Activities Under Sec. 60S — 
The responsibility to carry out Sec. 603 leadership and coordination 

activities has been delegated to the Rural Development Service. 

Agency objectives to carry out this mission are : 

(1) To insure that rural communities receive an equitable share 
of the available development resources. 

(2) To assist rural communities to gain better access to the 
available developmental resources. (Resources include financial 
and technical assistance, information, and manpower.) 

(3) To assist people in rural communities to become more effec- 
tive in implementing the developmental process in their com- 
munities. 

Coordination at the national level involves the analysis of existing 
and proposed Federal programs, legislation, regulations and policies 
to determine if they serve the rural sector properly and equitably. If 
not, RDS proposes appropriate changes and negotiates procedures to 
close program gaps, resolve funding problems and improve delivery 
mechanisms. RDS also assists in ^developing new or modified regula- 
tions and prepares instructional materials as new or revised programs 



38 

and procedures become operational. At the state and local levels, the 
RDS coordination activity consists primarily of providing program 
information and technical assistance directly to local officials seeking 
help in community development projects. 

In the leadership programs, RDS includes the development and 
dissemination of rural development information and materials, pro- 
viding technical assistance, developing and implementing training 
and education programs, serving on task forces and committees, estab- 
lishing liaison with relevant organizations and groups, and articulat- 
ing sroals f or rural development. 

A fuller explanation of these and other RDS activities follows: 

PROMOTION OF INCREASED RURAL ORIENTATION AMONG FEDERAL PROGRAM 

MANAGERS 

Through personal meetings, RDS coordinators have advised 265 
program managers in 36 Federal departments, independent agencies, 
and commission of the Rural Development Act legislative mandate, 
RDS services, and the needs that rural areas have for a more equitable 
share of their resources and services. In addition, coordination activi- 
ties were conducted with 88 program managers in 17 USDA agencies. 
Program managers have ranged from technicians and program direc- 
tors to administrators and deputy assistant secretaries, all of whom 
manage programs and influence policy relating to human resource 
development, natural resources, community facilities, or economic 
development. The objective is to — 

(1) Lay the groundwork for agreements that will benefit the 
rural sector. 

(2) Encourage each department with major programs appli- 
cable to rural needs to establish a rural development staff, action 
officers, or special office for the specific purpose of increasing the 
effectiveness to the individual department's efforts to assist rural 
people. 

The Rural Development Service also works to encourage Federal 
program managers to give greater attention to rural areas through its 
function of assuming the major portion of review responsibility in 
the Department of new Federal legislation and regulations relating to 
programs possibly affecting rural areas.

COORDINATION AGREEMENTS 

The Rural Development Service's executive branch coordination 
objective for FY 1976 is to effect a minimum of 10 interdepartmental 
or interagency agreements that will accomplish expanded or more 
efficient delivery of Federal assistance to rural areas. All such agree- 
ments are cooperative. RDS initiates, helps develop, and negotiates 
the agreements, but the program agencies determine their nature. 
Progress toward this coordination goal is as follows : 

(1) Completed agreements initiated or assisted by RDS 

An agreement with the Department of Housing and Urban De- 
velopment for the extension of time for preapplications for HUD's 
Title I, Community Development Block Grants, General Purpose 
Funds for Nonmetropolitan Areas. This agreement enabled nonmet- 
ropolitan areas to have sufficient time to make preapplications for FY 
1976 funds. 

An agreement with the Federal Highway Administration that en- 
abled USDA agencies to serve on an interdepartmental selection com- 
mittee for Rural Transportation Demonstration Project applications. 
This agreement allowed rural applicants to be represented by a rural 
advocate. 

An agreement between USDA and OMB, Interagency Systems 
Group, naming RDS as USDA coordinator for the Joint Funding 
Simplification Act. This agreement enables OMB to coordinate with 
one Agency in USDA for all program activities under the Act thus 
facilitating better coordination. 

An agreement between Farmers PTome Administration and Small 
Business Administration to ensure that business loan applicants are 
better served by the type of loan and loan agency best meeting their 
needs. This agreement establishes procedures for cooperative referral 
action. 






41 

An agreement between Farmers Home Administration and political 
subdivisions or an educational, charitable, or non-profit organization 
that permits employees of these groups to assist in the Administra- 
tion's effort to provide agricultural, housing and other assistance for 
rural people. This agreement enabled such agencies as Community 
Services Administration, Community Action Agency personnel to per- 
form outreach to locate applicants for low- cost housing loans and 
assist in loan packaging and provide ongoing counseling to home- 
owners on a gratuitous basis. 

An agreement between Public Health Service and Extension Serv- 
ice for the implementation of the Emergency Medical Services Sys- 
tems Act of 1973. This agreement enabled dissemination of infor- 
mation on grants and contracts under the Act to rural communities 
through the ES county office system. ES may also provide technical 
assistance to communities preparing proposals for systems to be 
funded under the Act. 

The Rural Development Service and Farmers Home Administra- 
tion in a joint action aimed at rural health problems contracted for 
rural health research to provide data and analysis for use in seeking 
an increased rural health commitment from Federal departments, in- 
dependent agencies and commissions. Results provide FmHA with 
needed data related to possible funding of community medical facili- 
ties under Title I of the Rural Development Act. Additionally, the 
study resulted in a planning outline which will assist rural communi- 
ties and areas to develop improved health care systems. 

(2) Agreements in -final stage of completion 

To implement a program that creates a delivery system for com- 
munity development and housing assistance for hard-to-reach low- 
income individuals and families in many rural areas. A Joint HUD- 
USDA Task Force has been established to develop a model and neces- 
sary agreement. This model is being developed by the Rural Develop- 
ment Service, Farmers Home Administration, Extension Service, and 
the Department of Housing and Urban Development. An agreement 
between USDA and HUD will combine the resources of the two agen- 
cies in order to utilize existing resources more efficiently. 

An agreement providing for standardization of procedures between 
the Department of Agriculture and Department of Defense for Sec- 
tion 608 (PL 93-552) activities for the Trident (Washington) Com- 
munity Assistance Program has been drafted by USDA and DoD. 
This agreement will eliminate the necessity for DoD to establish im- 
plementing agreements with individual USDA agencies and would 
provide a vehicle for coordination and consultation with USDA con- 
cerning Section 608 funding. 

(3) Agreements in process 

The Rural Development Service is working with the Appalachian 
Regional Commission, Health and Child Development Program, in 
developing a 5-year rural health project proposal. RDS is providing 
USDA coordination and comment on the project. RDS is identifying 
available resources outside ARC that may be applicable to assist in 
the implementation of the rural health project. 

The Rural Development Service is working with the Appalachian 
Regional Commission, Housing and Water Systems Program, to in- 



42 

tegrate ARC's Housing Impact Fund and other housing and com- 
munity development programs with the USDA programs. 

Rural Development Service is working with the Bureau of Com- 
munity Health Service, Health Services Administration, Public 
Health Service, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to 
integrate the activities of the National Health Service Corps, the 
Community Health Center Program, Migrant Health Program, and 
the eiTorts of the Appalachian Regional Commission to develop county 
and multicounty primary care system in areas with critical health 
manpower shortage. Forty-seven integrated rural health primary care 
sites have been selected and awarded grants. RDS is coordinating sep- 
arate agreements between the participating agencies and HEW for 
use of their respective resources and capabilities to assist in the imple- 
mentation of the HEW Rural Health Initiative. 

Rural Development Service and Department of Housing and Urban 
Development are developing a study to gain first-hand empirical in- 
formation regarding the growth potential and problems of rural 
growth centers and to provide a framework for other small towns to 
assist them in orderly growth. 

In conjunction with FmHA, SBA, and EDA, the Rural Develop- 
ment Service is exploring means whereby the adverse economic im- 
pacts of rail abandonments can be ameliorated. 

(4) Examples of areas with potential for negotiated agreements 

Major Rural Development Service coordinators are currently work- 
ing on commercially accepted standards for solar energy equipment 
for rural residences and buildings; use of USDA radio communica- 
tions network for medical emergencies ; use of Veterans Administra- 
tion facilities in rural areas by non-VA physicians on a cost sharing 
basis; agreement between HEW and USDA to develop rural health 
objectives; improving administration of food distribution programs 
in rural areas; agreement between USDA and southern medical 
schools on training and educating medical students to practice in rural 
areas : agreement between HUD and USDA to use research and de- 
velopment funds for use by Cooperative Extension Service personnel 
in housing and community development assistance; use of Reserve 
Officers during Active Duty Training for implementing rural develop- 
ment projects; improving construction specifications for exterior 
doors and hardware on Federal guaranteed and insured housing loans 
to reduce burglaries; energy conservation project to include in the 
standard construction specifications, of all Federal guaranteed or 
insured housing programs, clock or spring actuated night cycles on 
heating thermostat controls; developing coordination between USDA, 
HUD, and EPA on wastewater treatment grants; developing pro- 
cedures to enable rural areas gain better access to HEW's housing 
ance programs; develop joint funding of projects and planning 
• ance relating to law enforcement; develop firm arrangements for 
making surplus real and personal government properties more avail- 
able to rural communities in need ; and joint funding of projects entail- 
ing RDA community facilities resources and LEAA funded projects 
for law enforcement facilities and equipment. 



43 

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO STATES AND LOCALITIES 

One of the primary reasons that rural areas have not received an 
equitable share of Federal assistance is the inability of small rural 
communities to gain access to resources. RDS recognized the need for a 
single source of reliable, complete, and current information on assist- 
ance available for development and initiated the one-stop technical 
assistance and counseling coordination service to help rural communi- 
ties surmount barriers that account for this problem. These barriers 
include the following: lack of working knowledge of what resources 
are available ; the proper governmental personnel to contact ; lack of 
technical expertise in planning and in preparing sound project pro- 
posals; and lack of understanding of the potential for joint funding 
between different levels of government or different Federal agencies. 

RDS provides, in effect, a national rural development ombudsman 
service to help public officials and others gain ready access to Federal 
and State resources and other services applicable to their rural devel- 
opment plans and priorities. During FY 1975, counseling and tech- 
nical coordination assistance was provided to over 1,000 communities 
in helping them to better utilize government services and programs. 

FEDERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS RETRIEVAL SYSTEM (FAPRS) 

FAPRS is a computerized program information system initiated 
and developed by RDS with the assistance of USDA's Agricultural 
Stabilization and Conservation Service to provide quick, complete, 
and up-to-date retrieval of information on Federal assistance pro- 
grams applicable to rural development. The system is operational in 
RDS for 39 areas of aid in four major categories : community facili- 
ties, housing, business and industrial development and planning as- 
sistance. Additional categories will be programed into the system as 
warranted by demand. 

FAPRS is available for use on a cost-sharing basis by public and 
private groups having compatible computer terminals. The system was 
developed to assist program specialists in searching out rural develop- 
ment resources and will also give local officials the opportunity for on- 
site retrieval of program availability data. Access to the FAPRS serv- 
ice will be made available by Federal, State, or district offices that have 
a computer terminal and subscribe to the service. 

Applicants need no knowledge of computers to use the system. The 
computer is programmed to ask a few basic questions about the appli- 
cant's community and to assist in answering them if necessary. Based 
on this information, and the applicant's identification of the specific 
category of help being sought, the computer will print out the names 
of all applicable Federal assistance programs. The printout is cross- 
referenced to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance so that the 
user can refer to the Catalog for a summary description of each pro- 
gram identified and sources of further information. A small fee. gen- 
erally less than $5, may be charged to applicants to compensate the 
terminal office for the cost of providing the FAPRS service.

PLANNING ASSISTANCE 



RDS, in accordance with Rural Development Act regulations, pro- 
vides planning review services for regional, State, and local govern- 
mental or quasi-governmental organizations which have prepared 
development plans. This is a courtesy review designed to help insure 
the adequacy of plans developed by rural interests. 

RDS is also preparing a manual, "Rural Planning Guide," for use 
by rural officials and concerned citizens. The guide is designed pri- 
marily for communities that do not presently have the services of a 
full-time planner, expert, or staff. It will provide basic information to 
enable such rural communities to develop and maintain a continuing 
planning process. The guide describes the process needed to begin 
planning, details the elements of a comprehensive plan, and identifies 
sources of technical and financial assistance for planning. 

RDS and the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) jointly 
funded a rural health study providing a conceptual model for a rural 
health care delivery system and guidelines for use by FmHA program 
officials evaluating proposals for the funding of health care facilities 
under Title I of the Rural Development Act, RDS has circulated the 
study for comments by the Department of Health, Education, and 
"Welfare (HEW), private sector leaders in health care, and a number 
of other groups, and. in consultation with HEW, Extension Service, 
and other agencies, will prepare a local health care planning manual 
based on the study. 

GUIDE TO FEDERAL PROGRAMS FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT 

To augment RDS' technical assistance services. RDS has published 
a revised Guide to Federal Programs for Rural Development. This is 
a comprehensive reference catalog that serves as a directory for local 
government officials to learn where, in the array of Federal program 
assistance, they can seek support for their community development 
priorities. 

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE TO COMMUNITIES AND STATES 

To focus national attention on rural development and to assist vol- 
unteer community leaders in the processes and techniques of develop- 
ing their communities. RDS developed the National Rural Develop- 
ment Leaders School (XRDLS), a demonstration project which has 
provided leadership development assistance to over 550 citizen leaders 
from 49 States. Five sessions of the School have been conducted and 
two more will be conducted in 1076. The School model was developed 
with the assistance of Extension specialists. State and Federal gov- 
ernment representatives, universities, and other private sector repre- 
sentatives to provide a comprehensive and coordinated approach to 
rural development. Participants have been selected from multistate 
areas to <xive local leaders the opportunity to benefit from exchanges 
on rural development as an areawide proce-s. 

Rural Resources Fairs held at the week-long School sessions have 
enabled School participants to meet with representatives of numerous 
Federal and State government agencies providing assistance for local 
development efforts. 



45 

In response to requests from a number of States, RDS will develop 
and conduct an inservice training program based on the techniques 
and methods developed and used in NRDLS. The training will be con- 
ducted for State and substate governmental and private groups in- 
volved in rural development and wishing to use the NRDLS tech- 
niques in their own development efforts. 

RDS will also package NRDLS materials for use at the State level 
and will continue to help States that wish to conduct schools based on 
the techniques developed for NRDLS. 

With the assistance of RDS and Extension specialists, NRDLS par- 
ticipants from Minnesota developed a 4-day State Rural Development 
Leaders School and North Dakota participants a 3-day session. A 
number of other States have indicated a desire to adopt concepts from 
NRDLS, including Colorado, which the State Rural Development 
Committee plans to conduct a "mini-NRDLS" in several regions with- 
in the State. 

The motivational value of the School is illustrated in the case of a 
local banker from Iowa. After attending the School, the banker mobi- 
lized Iowa State University students to survey his community's de- 
velopment needs. Through use of an RDS-developed survey form 
entitled "Community Report Card" plus a comprehensive question- 
naire designed by the banker, the survey provided data for the Town 
Council to use in deciding on development priorities. Representatives 
from the town, including the banker, subsequently visited RDS in 
Washington, where a step-by-step plan of action was developed for 
the town to follow to achieve its development priorities. The town has 
since obtained an FmHA guaranteed loan for a senior citizens rental 
housing project and is undertaking a vigorous program of community 
development. 

COORDINATION SERVICES TO STATES 

As Secretary of the National Rural Development Committee, RDS 
is liaison agency between the Committee and the State Rural Develop- 
ment Committees. The State Committees, in operation in the 50 States, 
Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, are comprised of repre- 
sentatives of USDA agencies, State governments, public agencies, 
private groups, and, in many cases, other Federal Departments. The 
Committees provide a coordinative mechanism for rural development 
at the State, multicounty, and county level. County rural development 
committees represent 89 percent of the Nation's counties, and local 
committees represent all areas in the majority of States. 

RDS regularly provides the State Committees with current infor- 
mation on rural development program developments and issues, mails 
out Facts on Rural Development Resources, annual rural development 
reports submitted to the Congress, a rural development newsletter 
issued twice monthly, and responds to special requests for liaison serv- 
ices pertaining to State or areawide development conferences. In addi- 
tion, RDS reviews the Committee's annual plans of work and main- 
tains the USDA central depository records pertaining to the State 
Committees. 

REGIONAL COORDINATION SERVICES 

RDS activities described throughout this report serve to link Fed- 
eral. State, and local people in various ways. At the regional level, 
RDS has undertaken direct linkages through Rural Development 



46 

Roundtables, initiated to increase the understanding and knowledge 
of Federal and State program managers of their role in providing 
program assistance in rural areas. Two roundtable programs have 
been conducted for representatives of departments serving on the Fed- 
eral Regional Councils, other departments with field offices, State gov- 
ernment agencies, State offices of Federal Departments, and the 
private sector. 

RURAL DEVELOPMENT GOALS 

The Rural Development Act of 1972 directs the Secretary of Agri- 
culture to establish employment, income, population, housing, and 
quality of community services and facilities goals for rural develop- 
ment and to report on progress towards attainment of such goals. 

RDS has prepared two of these annual reports and the third report 
is currently in clearance. In preparing the third report, 25 agencies 
(15 outside the Department of Agriculture and 10 within the Depart- 
ment) were contacted for program information and accomplishments. 
The agency is currently designing a strategy to obtain inputs from a 
cross section of rural interests at the local, substate, State, multistate, 
and national levels. 

INFORMATION" SERVICES 

The Rural Development Service maintains supplies of publications 
describing individual programs of USDA and other departments and 
agencies with substantial resources available for rural development. 
The publications are supplied to visitors and in response to written 
and telephone requests for basic introductory information on Federal 
rural development programs, to eliminate the need for the inquirer to 
contact numerous separate agencies that all may administer programs 
relevant to one specific need. 

In addition to responding to numerous requests annually for basic 
rural development information, the RDS information staff conducts 
a wide range of information activities to publicize rural development 
as a process that is critically important to the Nation. This effort, in- 
cludes staff -produced television and radio shows and news and feature- 
material for newspapers and other publications; personal interviews 
of USDA officials by media representatives concerned with promoting 
rural development ; suggestions for feature stories on successful com- 
munity development projects and other subjects related to rural de- 
velopment given to newspapers nationwide; publications, such as the 
revised Guide to Federal Programs for Rural Development, a bibli- 
ography of rural development literature, and special fact sheets on 
rural development resources; and visual materials, such as films, 
exhibits, and a color slide show that describes how a hypothetical com- 
munity uses the Rural Development Act of 1972 and other legislation 
to upgrade the quality of community life. 

SPECIAL NOTICES 

RDS publishes Facts on Rural Development Resources as a means 
of quickly informing rural communities of newly available rural 
development resources, especially resources from programs that have 
a short application period. Examples include fact sheets on the Rural 
Highway Public Transportation Demonstration Program, the Hous- 



47 

ing and Community Development Act's community development 
block grants, the HUD community development discretionary grants ; 
and the rural community fire protection program under Title IV of 
the Rural Development Act. 

The fact sheets usually are distributed for EDS by FmHA and the 
Extension Service, who supply copies to their State and county offices 
for redistribution to appropriate local groups, and by the Rural Elec- 
trification Administration. In addition, RDS supplies copies to mem- 
bers of the Federal Regional Councils and to the 53 State Rural De- 
velopment Committees. RDS also publicizes the fact sheets via news- 
papers and radio announcements. 

Sec. 604. Additional Assistant Secretary of Agriculture — 
(Section 5315(11) of Title 5, U.S.C.) 

Authorized an additional position of Assistant Secretary of Agri- 
culture to give high level assistance to the Secretary in carrying out 
the new responsibilities for leadership and coordination assigned to 
him by section 603: to add emphasis to rural development; and to 
strengthen and broaden rural development efforts of the Department 
of Agriculture. 

Sec. 605. Long-Term Rural Environmental Protection Con- 
tracts — (Subsection B of Section 8 of the Soil Conservation 
and Domestic Allotment Act (16 U.S.C. 590a)) 

Provides authority for the Secretary to enter into multiyear (not 
to exceed a period of 10 years), as well as annual, cost-share agree- 
ments with agricultural producers. 

A program offering $190 million in cost-sharing assistance has been 
available to agricultural producers in 1975 for carrying out conserva- 
tion environmental improvement and forestry practices. It is anti- 
cipated that a program will be available in 1976. Producers will be 
informed by letter and news media of the practices available when 
the 1976 program is ready for operation. Under these programs, the 
producer files a request for cost-share assistance with the county 
ASCS office. The county ASC committee reviews and acts on the 
request according to program rules and regulations. The Soil Con- 
servation Service (SCS) provides technical assistance on practices 
requiring structural or engineering work. The Forest Service pro- 
vides technical assistance on forestry practices. The county ASC com- 
mittee reimburses the producer for a percentage of the cost of estab- 
lishing the practice, from 50 to 75 percent of the cost. 

For multiyear agreements, the request is referred to SCS for de- 
veloping with the producer the necessary conservation farm plan. 
Then, based on the conservation farm plan approved by the local Soil 
Conservation District, the county ASC committee and producer will 
complete and sign the agreement. The agreement will show the prac- 
tices to be cost-shared and the schedule of years for their establish- 
ment. The producer is then paid his cost-share assistance based on the 
practices performed each year under the agreement. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations, 
Title 7, Part 701.16.

Sec, 606, Cost-Sharing for Agriculture-Related Pollution Preven- 
tion and Abatement Measures — (Sections 7 and 8 of the Soil 
Conservation and Domestic Allotment Act (16 U,S,C, 590a)) 

Provides authority to the Secretary of Agriculture for cost-sharing 
with producers for carrying out pollution prevention or abatement 
pracl 

This authority is being carried out by offering in the cost-sharing 
program discussed above, cost-sharing assistance to agricultural pro- 
ducer for practices to control sediment and other run-oil' pollutants 
such as chemicals, and certain types of air pollution. 

For the complete set of regulations see Code of Federal Regulations,

ever the lives and property of Americans are endangered by wildfire 
in rural communities and areas. The Congress hereby finds that inade- 
quate fire protection and the resultant threat of substantial losses 
of life and property is a significant deterrent to the investment of the 
labor and capital needed to help revitalize rural America, and that

many rural areas to encourage and safeguard public and private 
investments in the improvement and development of areas of rural 
America where organized protection against losses from wildfire i> 
lacking or inadequate. To this end, the Secretary of Agriculture is 
authorized and directed to provide financial, technical, and other 
assistance to State foresters or other appropriate officials of the several 
States in cooperative efforts to organize, train, and equip local forces, 
including those of Indian tribes on Federal and State reservations 
or other federally recognized Indian tribal groups to prevent, control, 
and suppress wildfires threatening human life, livestock, wildlife, 
crops, pastures, orchards, rangeland, woodland, farmsteads, or other 
improvements, and other values in rural areas as defined in section 
"506(a) (7) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act. Ante", p. 659.
